Enjoying a boat safari in Sri Lanka on a winding river is one of the most delightful things that you can do while travelling in the southwest coast of Sri Lanka. Indeed, this charming experience will remain etched in your memory for many years!
The swampy marshlands that surround the Madu River are covered with thick mangrove forests. Sheltered within the thick foliage are many beautiful species of animals. The area boasts of over 300 species of animals and 19 of these are endemic to Sri Lanka. Among these, the wild boar, monkeys, crocodiles, snakes, and lizards are quite easy to spot. 111 species of birds have also been recorded in the region.
